Rarity was created by Lauren Faust, who based her off the G1 characters Glory and Sparkler. Rarity uses Glory's color scheme, Sparkler's cutie mark and appearance, and some mannerisms of G3 Rainbow Dash, like the Trans-Atlantic English accent and a tendency to flip her mane and say "darling". Faust stated that Audrey Hepburn was her biggest influence on Rarity.
Rarity is one of the main six protagonists of the series and represent the element of generosity. Rarity is a fashion designer and seamstress who owns her own shop in Ponyville, called the Carousel Boutique. Rarity has a little sister named Sweetie Belle who is friends with Applejack's younger sister Apple Bloom and a young pegasus named Scootaloo. Sweetie Belle and Rarity get along but at times her clumsiness, paired with an insistent willingness to help, tests Rarity's patience. While Rarity cares about her appearance quite a bit, being averse to stepping in mud or risking getting herself messy, she is not above getting dirty when it comes to helping her friends or creatures in need.
Rarity's special magical talent is locating precious stones. Like other unicorns, she can use her magic to levitate and move objects. She is also a skilled fashion designer, seamstress and interior decorator, though the tastefulness of the flashy outfits she creates is sometimes called into question. Rarity also seems to known Martial Arts as she has been seen several times combating different creatures she and her friends have faced.
Element of Harmony
Rarity represents the Element of Generosity. She discovered this when she gave a upset sea serpent her tail, due to his mustache getting sliced off by Nightmare Moon.
Her Element is a golden necklace with a purple diamond shaped gem that resembles her cutie mark.
